, tamerlan's return from russia? >> reporter: that's the big question. how the fbi, which interviewed tamerlan in 2011, lost track of him. what we have learned, the fbi database did not catch that trip to russia, that important trip where he reportedly became radicalized. officials here in washington say his name was misspelled on a flight manifest and fell through the cracks. they're determined to prevent that from happening again. john and diana? >> devin dwyer from washington. thank you. >>> another person who may be able to shed some light on the plot, the older brother's widow. the fbi wants to question katherine russell and her attorney. a meeting is being arranged. so far, she says she had no idea about her husband's deadly plot. and investigators are looking at whether tamerlan was involved in the brutal murder of three young men in 2011. one of whom was his roommate. the three young men were found with their throats slashed. >>> authorities in canada have foiled a plot to unleash terror on hundreds of unsuspecting train passengers. two men under arrest for planning the attack
waiting for? go call now! we'll finish up here. tamerlan >> important to understand why the fbi interviewed him in the first place. they had information from the foreign intelligence service about his possible radicalization. they went from there the fbi did their due diligence and did a very thorough job about trying to run that to the ground. then asked more help from that intelligence service to try to get further clarification. unfortunately they stopped cooperating. >> a foreign government asked the fbi to look into tamerlan tsarnaev as a radical. but they closed these. could this attack have been prevented and did the fbi drop the ball? fo rmer senior ncif official robert mcfadden. i will start with you robert. we have a lot of claims here that the fbi had to close their investigation of tamern and we had an fbi gentlemen on last night who says the fbi once they csed it no longer had any authority to collect intelligence domestically. so now what we have got are at least two people that we know of who were investigated the fbi, that being major nadal hassan from fort hood
that the fbi has told you that they missed tamerlan leaving the country and going to russia because maybe his name was misspelled, that was one of the reasons given. we just heard from secretary napolitano that he did indeed, and these are her words, ping when he left the united states, and then the investigation seemed to be cleared during his time away. where ills the discrepancy? what is the truth? because it goes to the question, is our system working or isn't it? >> clearly it's not working. i'm dumbfounded wither 4 answer. i was told dar -- with her answer. i was told two nights ago in march they got a letter from the russian intelligence services that the older brother was a radical islamist, watch out for him. they claimed to have interviewed him. they interviewed his family. they went to the school he was attending and interviewed people. they sent the file back to russia in october of 2011, asked for more information and they never heard from them again and they claimed the system did not pick him going to russia in january of 2012 because the name was mis misspelled. now i hear fro

today, new questions about how the fbi interrogated tamerlan tsarnaev before the attacks. >> why didn't the fbi follow up on that? you combine the first interrogation, the first examination plus the subsequent act. when somebody is brought to your attention, you investigate and find nothing and then he carries out murders, you wonder, didn't you miss something in the investigation? >> and today, our investigative team uncovered new details about the suspect's weapons. tamerlan and dzhokhar both carried illegal guns. neither had proper permits nor petitions and dzhokhar tsarnaev was under age. within the last hour the white house explained why the surviving suspect will go through the criminal system. >> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice under u.s. law. the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams i

question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent

the bombing a week with ago today, he and his brother tamerlan appeared to resume their normal lives. friends say he was at dartmouth, work withing out at the gym, talking about the bombing. and they are still in disbelief. >> it's hard top comprehend someone could go doing normal college kid stuff to bombing a marathon. >> and that about the older brother, tamerlan, 26 years old? he apparently talked to his parents in russia after the bombing and said everything was okay. he he went back to russia last year and was not interviewed afterwards. that has some on capitol hill wondering how did the intelligent agencies miss this? >> the fact that we could not track him as to be fixed. it's people like this that you don't want to let out of your site. this was a mistake. i don't know if our laws are in sufficient or the fbi failed but we're at war with radical islamists and we need to up our game. >> on "squawk box" last hour, he said the the whole thing this doesn't need is more interference with congress. >> we're lousy at intelligence. not that we need more layers of supervision. we need the pe

on the information that it received about tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother. and did not find terrorist activity, domestic or foreign. as for the president, you heard him say on friday, and i think it merits repeating -- i don't have it here, but it merits repeating in that he called for answers to a number of questions, as i said earlier: why this was done, what the motivations were, how it was done, any possible associations that the suspects may have had. and all of this is being investigated. and i think that you absolutely can expect that all the agencies involved as part of the broader investigation are examining these issues. >> well, i think we agree with what some of the coauthors of the bill -- including, i believe, senators mccain and graham and rubio -- have said, reasons why we need is because it will enhance when implemented our national security. and it is another reason why we need to move forward with this very important bipartisan legislation. that is certainly our view. >> are you worried that the effort may lose some momentum now because of this? >> well, i will simply say t
the fbi knew that tamerlan tsarnaev, was worth a look and a talk. we also know is that fbi did look and did talk. it just did not have enough on the man who later would be known as suspect number one in boston bombing, to hold him for so much as a single minute in a cell, fbi said because it did not have power or authority. to judge napolitano on federal officials pushing to give the fbi much more. sweeping powers so it can act on its own authority. i always think that maybe because, have sat by you so long be careful what you wish for. >> absolutely, the fbi's arresting authority is established by the constitution. not a federal statute. congress could not expand this authority even if it wanted to. fbi received indication from russian intelligence that older brother was worth looking at, fbi discounts what it gets, a, they are political, b this guy was chechen, and russians hate chechens, russians spy on us, they are generally not to be trusted, they invest gated him, and they did not hold him, they did not have evidence he committed any crime, fbi arrests people for probable caus
